The Lost City of Z, written and directed by James Gray (The ImmigrantTwo Lovers), will be the Closing Night selection of the 54th New York Film Festival. The film, based on journalist David Grann’s nonfiction book of the same name, will make its World Premiere at the festival’s final gala screening on Saturday, October 15. 




THE LOST CITY OF Z
OFFICIAL TRAILER

James Gray’s emotionally and visually resplendent epic tells the story of Lieutenant Colonel Percy Fawcett (a remarkable Charlie Hunnam), the British military-man-turned-explorer whose search for a lost city deep in the Amazon grows into an increasingly feverish, decades-long magnificent obsession that takes a toll on his reputation, his home life with his wife (Sienna Miller) and children, and his very existence. 


Also starring Robert Pattinson and Tom Holland, The Lost City of Z represents a form of epic storytelling that has all but vanished from the landscape of modern cinema, and a rare level of artistry.

Gray and cinematographer Darius Khondji cast quite a spell, exquisitely pitched between rapture and dizzying terror. 
Gray’s previous film, 2014’s The Immigrant, was an official selection of the 51st New York Film Festival.

The Lost City of Z is produced by Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Anthony Katagas, and Dale Armin Johnson, and is executive produced by Brad Pitt and Marc Butan.

Directors Dialogues, presented free to the public each year, feature notable filmmakers from this year’s festival sitting down for a special Q&A with a NYFF selection committee member to discuss their craft and moviemaking approach, as well as the current state of film. This year’s participating directors include

·        Maren Ade (Toni Erdmann),
·        Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester by the Sea),
·        Paul Verhoeven (Elle), and
·        Mike Mills (Centerpiece selection 20th Century Women).

All four of these directors’ newest films are screening as part of the NYFF54 Main Slate. This year the Directors Dialogues will take place at both the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center’s Amphitheater and a new venue, the Bruno Walter Theater (located at the Lincoln Center Public Library for Performing Arts).


Additionally, NYFF will present Meet the Makers, a series of talks with creators of projects in the Convergence section. Highlights include

·      Priya’s Mirror innovators Ram Devineni and Dan Goldman on fusing augmented reality and comic books to shatter taboos around the world—with UN Women’s Global Youth Champion Monica Singh in person to share her story, which inspired the project;

·      A panel with filmmakers behind Global Lives Project’s large-scale installation Lives in Transit;

·      Late Shift creators Baptiste Planche and Tobias Weber on choose-your-own-adventure interactive narrative films;

·      Soundhunters app creators François Le Gall and Nicolas Blies on remixing the world of sounds around you into a transmedia experience; and

·      A conversation with the collaborators of the popular returning project Sherlock Holmes & The Internet of Things.


Meet the Makers conversations are free and open to the public.


Alongside On Cinema, Directors Dialogues, and Meet the Makers, the festival’s popular free NYFF Live series will return this year.

DETAILS


ON CINEMA

On Cinema: Jim Jarmusch (Paterson, Gimme Danger)
In this annual master class, NYFF director Kent Jones sits down with world-renowned filmmakers for an in-depth conversation about films from other directors that have influenced and inspired them, their talk illustrated with film clips. For the 2016 edition, Jones sits down with legendary American independent filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, who has two films featured in this year's festival.
Tuesday, Oct 4, 8:30pm (Howard Gilman Theater in the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, 144 West 65th Street)


DIRECTORS DIALOGUES

Directors Dialogues: Maren Ade
One of the most vivid, electrifying talents in cinema today, German director Maren Ade makes breathtakingly intimate films keyed in to the subtle interactions and sometimes inexplicable grand gestures that make us human. A major highlight of this year’s NYFF, her latest film, Toni Erdmann, is an emotional and hilarious dazzler, unlike anything else you’ve seen.
Sunday, Oct 2, 7pm  (Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center Amphitheater, 144 West 65th Street)

Directors Dialogues: Kenneth Lonergan
Refusing to shy away from nearly unutterable emotions, the forceful new film from Kenneth Lonergan, Manchester by the Sea, follows a troubled Massachusetts handyman (an unforgettable Casey Affleck) who travels to his North Shore hometown after the death of his brother and must confront memories of an earlier tragedy. As proven in You Can Count on Me and Margaret, few American filmmakers today are better at making movies that express how difficult it is to move on from the past.
Sunday, Oct 2, 3pm (Bruno Walter Auditorium, 111 Amsterdam Avenue between 64th and 65th Streets)

Directors Dialogues: Mike Mills
Following his Oscar-winning Beginners, Mike Mills has fashioned a moving, funny film, 20th Century Women, starring Annette Bening as a single mother raising a teenage son in a bohemian house in 1979 Santa Barbara. All of the details are just right in this culturally specific yet widely accessible American comedy, which is the Centerpiece film of this year’s NYFF.
Sunday, Oct 9, 3pm (Bruno Walter Auditorium)

Directors Dialogues: Paul Verhoeven
At first blush, it’s hard to believe the same director responsible for the ultraviolent action masterpiece RoboCop and the blockbuster thriller Basic Instinct is also responsible for Elle, the new film starring the great Isabelle Huppert as a video-game designer who has a surprising and complex response after she is raped by a home invader. But all his provocative films are of a piece: wry, satirical, and knowing takes on culture, movies, and personal fantasy.
Thursday, Oct 13, 7pm (Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center Amphitheater)


CONVERGENCE: MEET THE MAKERS SESSIONS

MEET THE MAKERS: PRIYA’S MIRROR
Ram Devineni, Dan Goldman, Monica Singh
Ram Devineni and Dan Goldman, co-creators of the hugely popular augmented reality comic book series Priya, present the next installment, titled Priya’s Mirror, which concerns acid attacks. Joining Devineni and Goldman is Monica Singh, who shares her resilient story about surviving a brutal acid attack and later becoming UN Women’s Global Youth Champion.
Sunday, Oct 2, 1pm (Howard Gilman Theater in the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, 144 West 65th Street)

MEET THE MAKERS: LIVES IN TRANSIT
Global Lives Project
Lives in Transit chronicles 24 hours in the lives of transportation workers from around the world. Join us for a screening of shorts about drivers of boats, buses, trains, motorcycles, cars and horse carts; a traveling circus performer; and a collector of a rare aphrodisiac fungus. A panel of the films’ directors will speak about their experiences collaborating to make this series possible.
Saturday, Oct 1, 5:30pm (Howard Gilman Theater)

MEET THE MAKERS: SOUNDHUNTERS
François Le Gall and Nicolas Blies
Join the creators of the Soundhunters App—a tool that allows people to record and tag sounds via their mobile devices, sample, and remix them into their own unique musical compositions—for an in-depth look at this multifaceted, international transmedia experience.
Saturday, Oct 1, 1pm (Howard Gilman Theater)

MEET THE MAKERS: LATE SHIFT
Baptiste Planche and Tobias Weber
Is the future of feature filmmaking fully interactive, choose-your-own-adventure style storytelling? The creators of Late Shift and CtrlMovie, the interactive film format powering the project, will explore the challenges inherent in creating audience-directed interactive films.
Sunday, Oct 2, 4:30pm (Howard Gilman Theater)

MEET THE MAKERS: SHERLOCK HOLMES & THE INTERNET OF THINGS
Lance Weiler and Nick Fortugno

Two years in development, Sherlock Holmes & The Internet of Things spans the globe with events in dozens of cities powered by over two thousand collaborators actively contributing to this “copyleft” experiment. Lead collaborators Weiler and Fortugno will comment on the state of the project and reflect on what their experiences tell us about the future of shared stories.
Sunday, Oct 2, 1pm (Howard Gilman Theater)
